NEWSFLASH:

Logan is really cute and getting cuter by the minute!


Ok, so it's not a newsflash, but it doesn't mean it isn't true.

He's getting to be so much fun. We can chase him while threatening "Mama's gonna get you" and he'll squeal with delight as he warp speed crawls away. The cutest is when "Daddy's gonna get you" and he crawls over to me to hide between my legs. So cute!

He also really like to show how awesome he is at peek a boo. Go ahead, just ask him "Where's Logan?" So cute!

He's also showing off his third (and almost also fourth) new tooth. Micah and I feel bad for the kid because between the two of us, our kids are destined to have those huge front teeth you only seem to grow into as you are graduating (COLLEGE!). Anyways, right now those two front teeth are just playing peek a boo with his lips, only showing themselves when he has one of those characteristic Logan smiles. So cute!

Watching this little man pick up a handful of tiny dried fruit, only to drop the ones that don't stick (from spit or food or whatever is already on his hands) so that one little piece of fruit dangles from a finger that he tries to carefully steer into his mouth, only to have that misguided and stick to his lip. but wait! as it loosens, it drops as though the food knows where to go better than Logan could guide anyhow but just then he catches it with the back of his hand & guides it in for final approach to the mouth. SUCCESS! Then, you get the pleasure of watching him gum it for eternity until it just dissolves. SO cute!

Um, what has happened to me? What has my life become? Can I seriously be so entertained by the mundane tasks of my child feeding himself? Is playing peek a boo seriously all the rage? I dunno, but I'd definitely say it was a Long time comin' (and I like it)!

So much to say, so few posts!

Sorry it's been a while... I don't know how in the world my sister has managed regular maintenance of her blog for going on three years now. (Well, now that she's moving, pregnant and chasing a toddler, even she is a wee bit behind in updates). Regardless, I keep thinking "oh I can't wait to add this to the blog" or "man, my mom is gonna flip if I don't update soon", but somehow at the end of a long day, sleep seems so much more enticing. Well NO MORE!

Let's see... where to begin... where did we leave off? Yes, Logan is crawling (like a mad man, in fact). He even started pulling up just in time for Grandy and Mimi's visit.

Their car problems became our blessing because their short trip ended up being a couple days longer while they had to wait for their van to be fixed. We enjoyed many great meals together. We also got to spend some time with Angela and the kids, which is always nice. It was really great having them here, and it made me wish Logan had his grandparents nearby.

We also celebrated Conrad's birthday. It was a great time to sit back and have a few. The sangria was divine (no hangover) and the keg was pumpin. All the while the kids were hopped up on the excitement (or was it the caramel apple lollipops?).


We celebrated McKinna's third birthday as well. Unfortunately, we were all having so much fun in the bouncy houses that no pictures were taken. I wish I would've gotten a few of Arwen and Micah drenched in sweat after bouncing off the walls... literally!

We got another great visitor; this time PeePaw came to town. Although we missed Grandma Marsha, we had a great time visiting with Hoyt. His visit had perfect timing -- free day at the Museum of Nature and Science. I had never been and was super excited to go. We asked the Vaughan's if Roan could join us, and lucky us she did!

October began Micah's full-time Daddy detail. We're only on one day a week at daycare to give Micah a bit of a break and to keep Logan chillin with kids his age. Every other day of the week is spent with his daddy. Here's a pic of them at the park.

And in this one, Roan is giving Logan a good push on the swings. We've been able to watch Roan more often lately, which has been great for us (and good for her parents to move to the new place)!

Today, Micah took Logan for his first hike. They went to ElDorado with Hunter.




And here's a couple of videos because well, I think my kid is cute and you might enjoy them as much as I do...
